I’ve had the pleasure of owning sheepdogs for most of my life. When my youngest Welsh sheepdog became fearful of other dogs at the age of 7 months I researched her behaviour and attended behavioural workshops and generally improved my knowledge of canine behaviour, which I continue to do at every given opportunity. I’m studying with the IMDT (Institue of Modern Dog Trainers) and hoping to become an accredited dog training instructor early next year.
In a previous life I was a software trainer, including working as an Apple Creative (personal trainer) in the US.
